Ed Sheeran – On This Side of the Dream Lyrics

- Advertisement -

I keep my hopes and dreams
inside of you amongst the other things
my mother seems to never see
the bruises that I’m covering
Never been known
as my government name
my foster home is where
I’ve been placed away from the pain
and now you sit before me
with a folder holding my story
you’re my savior with nothing on me
but power and glory

And surely you’ll never ignore
cos when the the court came
the court date was made
to disappear for me
You think you understand me
but never what I went through
but you were never meant to
I won’t hold it against you
I take a ballpoint pen
to play dot to dot
with the cigarette burns
etched in my forearms
Forget me not
never let me stop
you’ll just sit and watch
it’s your job to be patient
so you’ll let me off

So come with me
take a walk on the wild side
see life
in a day through a child’s eyes
And these dreams
are all I have
to hold me
When sleeps the only thing
that I want to take me away
away

Okay sessions over time
to get back to the classroom
I hate this lesson and I guess
the teacher finds it hard too
You told me I should try my best
but guess what
I still find this trigonometry
a head fuck
Constantly told
I won’t pass my GCSE’s
I’ll end up in Mac D’s
serving burgers and cheese
But you told me
I can do anything
if I put my mind to it
Mistakes make a change
if you put a line through ’em
Lately classmates think I’m crazy
turn up daily resembling bill bailey
And I ain’t saying
that I can’t be groomed
but it without new clothes
or shower it hard to do
So after school you’ll take me shopping
for some new clothes
but they’ll get taken off me
when I get back to the group home
So come with me
take a walk on the wild side
see life in a day
through a child’s eyes
And these dreams
are all I have
to hold me
When sleeps the only thing
that I want to take me away
away
